Kinda hard if you don't tell us your budget. With out one I'd suggest the Denon 3808ci. It'll handle the advanced codecs (DTS-MA and Dolby TruHD). If you can't afford $1300 then you may want to look at something like the Onkyo 605, as long as you have proper ventilation (they run HOT). Since your PS3 can't bitstream the advanced codecs anyways you'll be fine with any receiver that can do PCM. You'll still be able to take advantage of Dolby TruHD since the PS3 can decode it internally but you'll have to wait for Sony to enable DTS-MA decoding. You will be buying new speakers too?

Yeah i know. How about a sony reciever, i saw one for about 899.00. What is PCM anyways. I actually get 3/2 dolby surround, is there much of an increase in sound performance otherwise. You mean i have to trade my bose speakers in??

Thanks
